About Us

The University of Washington Foster School of Business Executive Education and the Consulting and Business Development Center, in conjunction with the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) corporate and government partners, are developing and growing diverse-owned business enterprises.

For 10 years, the Minority Business Executive Program has accelerated the growth of diverse suppliers to the nation’s leading corporations. Business revenue growth for program alumni averages more than 10%, and our corporate partners continue to see improved performance from the companies they sponsor to attend.

A major component in the success of the MBE Program is the generous financial support from our Corporate Partners.

The annual financial support of corporate partners is critical to the success of the MBE program.
